Marbling is not a strong point of mine and I do try. The effect I end up with a nice and subtle and I can live with that. To know all about the technique, turn to page 43 of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities III. My paints of choice were Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Broken China and Tarnished Brass. As I made two backgrounds, I went ahead and made two projects.
For the tag, I stamped that wonderful sentiment in Black Archival and the clear embossed, along with using Tim's heart stencil and inking with Black Soot and clear embossing.
Colored in the banner with a little Broken China.
Applied black paint, which was rubbed off and a little sanding and then I cut a blue circle and added a decent amount of Glossy Assents in the center to push through and fill the "F." Added some sweet little letters and I do believe this will be a birthday tag for my hubby's B-day in June!
Using more new stamps from Tim, all images were stamped using Sepia Archival on the Postage stamp and I cut another using the square movers and shapers to cut a frame and tied it all up. Simple card, but sweet! The backgrounds painted, inked and spritzed.
